Christian education is at the very heart of the church. In the educational process the Spirit of God encounters people of all ages so that they are nurtured in faith, grow in knowledge and experience, and are inspired and empowered to live as disciples of Jesus Christ. The Christian Education Committee at Trinity Presbyterian Church has the responsibility for all educational opportunities, events, and programs for children, youth, and adults in the church, and for the budget to sustain the aforementioned activities. The specific areas of concern involve church school, vacation bible school, bible study, camps and conferences, confirmation class, and Ready, Set, Worship class.
Just As You Are…
Just As You Are currently meets during the school year at 9:00 and serves more as an intergenerational worship and educational experience! All ages (Elementary on up!) are welcome to join us for lively, contemporary music, sharing of joys and concerns in our lives, followed by a DVD-based study and discussion. We recently finished “Making Sense of the Bible” DVD study. This worship and study time replaces our traditional model of Sunday School, though we still offer two traditional adult classes (see below).
Traditional Sunday School meets at 10:00.
Infant through Kindergarten—staffed by our nursery worker, Clarice Robinson and volunteer teachers. The crib nursery is in room 3. Preschoolers meet in room 5. These classrooms are joined by a half-door.
The Present Word: a teacher led Bible study for adults, using PCUSA curriculum, and led by Marion Chandler. This class meets in the room across from the chapel.
Thinking the Faith: A DVD based adult discussion class, currently studying Judaism. This class meets in the library beginning at 9:45, and is facilitated by Frank Staley and Gerry Shiver.
The Christian Education committee is currently chaired by William Creek. They meet the 1st Wednesday of each month at 6:30. For more information, please email email@example.com and include “ATTN: CE committee” in the subject line.
